EOTD - Kose Visee Glam Shade Eyes GY-6 - Swatches and Reviews

Along with the neutral gray Lunasol palette, I have also another gray palette from Visee, Glam Shade Eyes in GY-6.

Visee is a drugstore brand made by the brand Kose. However I feel that Visee cost a little more than other drugstore brand like Kate, Majolica Majorca, and Lavshuca, etc... I paid about $22usd for this Visee palette.

This palette is cased inside a rather glam silver toned compact with some pebble stone like details on it, and it is because of this, I have less issues with fingerprinting all over the case because of the pebble texture.

Now, moving on to the colors offered by the eyeshadow itself.

From left to right, a shimmery beige-white highlight, a light taup-ish brown, a deeper charcoal brown, an almost black for eye lining, and a silvery shimmer white for highlighting the inner corners of the eyes.

Now, swatches on my arm:

Moving on to the EOTD, under direct sunlight:

And under indoor lighting, where shimmers are more pronounced:

The colors and effect is quite similar as my Lunasol palette that I have reviewed yesterday. Though the texture isn't as smooth and creamy as Lunasol's, I am ok with given it's more than half the price Lunasol palette. 

There are no significant fall-out that I have noticed, and to my surprise, I don't need an additional eyeliner as the black shade in the palette works as a great eyeliner at the outer corners of my eyes. (and this black eyeshadow has hardly any fall out at all which makes things a lot easier!)

I would say this is a great substitute for Lunasol to those who would like to try out Japanese brand eyeshadows!

Another blogger friend of mine raved about BL-8, and according to her, it is a very pretty blue palette. I have always been cautious with bright blue eye makeup as they are usually not flattering for my skintone. But she said she has a similar skin color to me (NC-30) and it has work great on her. Em, I may think about it if I should get it in my next haul... haha! (yes, I stressed that I need to save up yesterday!)

nice:) thanks for the comparison... it looks like nice to have both! I'm also eyeing on MJ eyeshadow palette. what do you think?

both eye shadows seem repetitive... but depending on your budget, it's ok to have just one of them...

which MJ palette?

But don't you think that MJ palette is always sheer?

Hey Jie Jie, I think you are looking for the limited edition ones? I have seen the Muse reviewed about it, here's the link:

The brown one seems appealing to me as I am sure the pink one will look so bruised on me.

I am heading out to buy my last haul of Japanese snacks. I am not allowed to consume further Japanese snacks or makeup until I was given permission again.... (just as a precaution...)
